- Wedding: August 2011
I picked out the wedding party attire a couple months ago, but I’m now having second thoughts. The second thoughts came about because I changed my mind and decided to let my dad walk me down the aisle (somewhat complicated family situation) instead of my brother, who is also a groomsman. I now have to pick something for my dad to wear and that has led me to some second guessing on the groomsmen attire. My FH wants absolutely wants to wear a tux with white vest and tie. That’s fine with me and it’s what he wants. I’m just happy I don’t have to pick that out, too. My bridesmaids are wearing long dark purple/eggplant dresses (David’s Bridal Lapis color).
I was originally planning on having the guys wear a light purple vest because I thought it popped better against the black of the tux and because originally I planned on the color scheme being shades of purple. I have changed my color scheme to dark purple and bright apple green because I wanted to liven/brighten things up a bit (and green is my favorite color!) The green hasn’t really been incorporated into a lot of things yet. The girls will be having green hydrangea bouquets and the guys will have green orchid bouts.
The reception venue has a lot of gold in it (gold chairs, gold chargers, gold curtains on the windows) so I’ve sort of stayed away from silver/charcoal (though I like it). I’m debating if I should leave the guys in light purple vests or change them to a matching dark purple?
The girls are wearing something like this:
Here are the two vest options:
vs. (this vest does actually match the dresses, the colors in the photos are just a bit off)
I’m also at a bit of a loss for what color vest my dad should wear. If I stick with the light purple I was thinking he could wear the dark purple vest? I’m also considering gold, silver/charcoal, or sage green. Thoughts?
